This week I was lucky to receive a new night riding light for the upcoming night rides I am leading as well as some night racing. Considering this light comes in sub £20 - this Nestling light sure does pack in a lot of value with 4000 lumens and a rear AAA battery powered light free in the box just in case you encounter some roads on the way home.
At the price, I was super pleased to get almost 2 hours of night riding out of a charge with battery to spare - and the green lights to the rear of the light are helpful to let you know when to start heading home.
The light has 4 settings - flashing plus 3 levels of brightness. On fireroad climbs I turned the lights down to the lowest constant beam which lit up the path adequately. I tried the medium setting on the descents, however I found it a little too dark, so I used the brightest setting for most (photo on medium setting set far ahead to show distance).
The light sits nicely on the bars- with the fixing supplied staying in position throughout but also easy to manoeuvre so the light is in the best position for the trail.
The battery pack is reasonably compact - and I think with some proper tape, the cable would run better along the frame. The pack itself was sat out the the right of the frame due to the space on the Kona Process frame (size Medium), however this didn't affect riding at all, and the pouch stopped any marks being made on the frame.
Further testing needed to see how it fairs in variable weather. More soon!
